Is Liposuction Typically a Part of Tummy Tuck Surgery In Virginia?

Tummy tuck surgery is designed to remove excess skin from the midsection. With a tummy tuck, Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can also firm abdominal muscles, sculpt the hips and waist, and even eliminate the appearance of stretch marks. When appropriate or necessary, Dr. Gartside can also use liposuction during the tummy tuck procedure to remove stubborn deposits of fat throughout the belly.

No two tummy tuck procedures are the same. To learn what steps will be included in the toning and firming of your mid-body, please call 703-742-8004 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gartside.

How Liposuction Helps

Stubborn deposits of fat are common in the midsection of both men and women. These fat deposits may respond somewhat to diet and exercise, but often continue to produce a lumpy and puffy appearance even after other parts of the body have become trim. Liposuction is the most effective way to safely remove this fat and produce a flat and smooth appearance.

Dr. Gartside offers a number of liposuction options including SmartLipo. During your Virginia tummy tuck consultation she will assess your body to help you determine if liposuction will be of benefit during your procedure.
